What if your company’s weaknesses were also strengths? What if you stopped hiding those flaws and started promoting them? No organization is perfect. The best brands find success and a unique identity by acknowledging and flaunting their weaknesses.

David Rendall is setting marketing thinking on its head with a radical shift in brand differentiation. This funny and counter-intuitive talk explores how to improve results by starting with perceived flaws—and amplifying, rather than denying them.

This presentation will encourage you to create marketing strategies that are more different and more unique, not more average and more mediocre.

You’ll discover:

  • Unconventional differentiation methods
  • Greater awareness of organizational (and personal!) strengths and weaknesses
  • New perspective on organizational strategy

David Rendall reclaims the term “freak” for what it is – a powerful, game-changing competitive advantage in life and business.
